If you enjoy either cycling or hiking they are both good activities to do for fun and to keep you fit and healthy. However an accident that was not your fault, could occur in either one of them. It could happen very suddenly and put an end to all of your fun.
Hikers and cyclists are both vulnerable and if injured, may want to use the solicitors in Kedleston
With both of these activities an accident could happen at any time. For example what if you set off on you bike or for a walk through some fields, and you had your head phones on listening to some music. Either of you could trip on something which would cause you to have some injuries, something that should not have been there. Or what if the hiker was crossing the road and the cyclist was trying to turn a corner, because you were both listening to some music you didn’t notice the oncoming car who was also messing with their phone or radio, then a serious accident could then take place and your injuries could be very serious indeed.
As none of you was concentrating properly because of listening to music or a phone, then the accident would take place very suddenly and unexpected.
The first thing you should do is to phone the police so they can come an inspect any damage that has been caused. After the police arrives they should fill out an accident report stating everything that has happened. This report will come in handy for when you use the solicitors in Kedleston to make your injury claim. You should also get the contact details of any witnesses and take photos on your phone at the scene, as these will also come in handy for your injury claim.
If you injuries are quite serious then an ambulance should arrive to take you to hospital, so they can asses your injuries and to treat you better. Whether you have broken a bone, have concussion or if your injuries are much worse, after you get a little better then you should consider making an injury compensation claim, using the solicitors in Kedleston.
